The day that someone produces a newspaper ad that reads: “Twenty honkies for sale today: good condition, best offer accepted,” or “Cracker to be lynched tonight: whistled at black woman,” then perhaps I’ll see the equivalence of these slurs with the more common type to which we’ve grown accustomed. When white churches start getting burned down by militant blacks who spray paint “Kill the honkies” on the sidewalks outside, then maybe I’ll take seriously these concerns over “reverse racism.
Tim Wise, Honky Wanna Cracker? Examining the Myth of “Reverse Racism” (via darkjez)
this is so great for all these internet trolls that have come out of their lairs to complain about the “Shit White Girls Say…to Black Girls” viral video.
Also, I don’t really like the way this quote begins. White racism should be put in quotation marks, just like reverse racism should always be too.
